How To Whiten Sensitive Teeth with #SmileBrilliant


If you have sensitive teeth or gums, you may find it hard to find a whitening system that doesn't irritate. I am one of those people with super-sensitive teeth, and because of that I have avoided most teeth whitening kits. I've tried a few here and there over the past few years, but only found one that didn't cause any sensitivity in my teeth or gums. Many kits or systems I tried I could use once (often leaving the gel or strips on for only half the suggested time), but if I tried a second application, couldn't stand the sensitivity it caused. A couple years ago I tried a unique home-whitening system from a company called Smile Brilliant, and to date it is the only system that really does whiten my teeth, but doesn't cause any sensitivity!




Smile Brilliant is a home whitening system that allows you to actually get a custom-fitted tray designed specifically for your teeth. The kit comes with desensitizing gel and whitening gel, and this combination is perfect for people like me! Simply use the desensitizing gel in your trays for 10-15 minutes, and this prevents and alleviates any sensitivity. I only need to use it once a day during my whitening process, but you can actually use it more frequently if needed. For example, you could use it both before and after whitening, or even a couple different times throughout the day. I haven't found this necessary however; just the one use a day does the trick for me.



This is by far the best home teeth whitening system I have found for people with sensitive teeth. You can also find out more information about what causes sensitive teeth. I highly recommend it for anyone who's had a bad experience with home whitening, or is nervous about trying it out. You will love the results, and love the fact that your teeth and gums don't feel any pain or sensitivity! Smile Brilliant is also running a giveaway, so be sure to enter for a chance to win

Caring For A Refinished Tub

Caring For A Refinished Tub

Whether you hire a tub refinishing Atlanta company to give your tub a make over or you do the work on your own, there are a few tips that you want to keep in mind to get the best results possible. A refinished tub is one that sparkles and looks like it did when the tub was first placed in the bathroom. It can give new life to the room instead of creating a dull look. 

Refinishing the tub is a less expensive option that replacing the tub in most cases unless there are cracks in the tub or the plumbing just isn't compatible any longer. When the job is done in the proper manner, it can last for up to 20 years, longer if you take care of the material that the tub is made of and if the tub isn't used on a regular basis. An example would be if the bathroom is a guest room that isn't used every day. As long as there are very few chips or scratches, the average cost for refinishing a tub is usually less than $500. 

After the tub has been refinished, there are a few cleaners that can be used to maintain the appearance. The tub might be a little slippery at first, so it's important to use caution when getting in and out of the tub, especially if children or elderly family members are in the bathroom. Refinishing the tub will remove small chips in the paint or other material that the tub is covered with. This is a benefit for the safety of those who use the tub as it can prevent scratches on the skin. When you're cleaning the tub, avoid using bleach because it can seep into the pores of the tub, causing small cracks and chips to develop. It will also etch away the porcelain on the tub. Bleach will strip the glaze away from the tub, which is what causes the dull appearance. Once the tub is refinished, the brilliance of the polish will return. Another tip to keep in mind is not to leave shampoo bottles in the corner of the tub. This will stain the corners over time, making this area of the tub harder to refinish.
